Domaine de la Charbonnière has been the singular passion of the Maret family since their purchase of this iconic property in 1912. The young and charismatic Veronique Maret is responsible for the meteoric rise of Charbonnière – Veronique is handling all winemaking and somehow also finding the time to run the Domaine’s sales activities. One of the most important changes Veronique made since taking over in 2012 was the move to organic viticulture.
Charbonnière’s wines are all elegant and rich simultaneously. This Vacqueyras has opulent notes of dark cherries, raspberries, and dried herbs. The palate is utterly elegant with beautiful length driven by black berries and liquorice.
